Why it is important to clean up your email
Why it is important to clean up your email

It is important to clean up your email because of the costs to backup our data storage. Here are some examples of costs and the fallout from massive amounts of data:

1.  The increased cost of offsite data storage is phenomenal.  We just negotiated a better deal to store data offsite, as part of our disaster preparedness plan.  Even with recently lowering the cost, we are approaching $2,500/month as we are charged per gigabyte of storage.  The cost goes up from $150-$200/month.

 

IN 2 YEARS THE COST FOR OFFSITE DATA STORAGE WILL APPROACH $6,000/MONTH

AT THE CONSERVATIVE RATE OF $150/MONTH INCREASE

 

 

IN 5 YEARS THE COST FOR OFFSITE DATA STORAGE WILL APPROACH $12,000/MONTH

AT THE CONSERVATIVE RATE OF $150/MONTH INCREASE

 

 

2.  Costs associated with on-site tape storage have escalated as we need to buy an increasing amount of costly tapes.

 

3.  Our backup to tape runs overnight.  We run the risk of the backup not finishing by the time people show up at 7:00am for work.  The bandwidth needed for the data to backup will mean a potential slow down in the network.

 

4.  Our ability to recover from a disaster quickly is hindered as the time it would take to restore our data will be slower than what it could be if we had less data to restore.
